Infectious diseases are medical conditions or disorders caused by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and other parasites. Several organisms are present in and on human bodies. Some organisms are normally harmless and even helpful. However, under certain circumstances, some organisms cause diseases. Infectious diseases spread from one person to another. Moreover, some are transmitted by bites from insects and animals. Infectious diseases also occur by consumption of contaminated food and water.
Moreover, anti-infective drugs play a vital role in the treatment of infectious diseases. Anti-infective drugs are used to kill and stop growth of microorganism. These drugs can act as a defense system for human body and neutralize the action of disease causative agents. Based on microorganism, anti-infective drugs are mainly categorized into antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic drugs.
